Candace Canady was a rising junior at Emanuel County Institute (ECI) in Emanuel County Georgia before she passed on to be with the Lord.

The Candace Jeanette Canady "Live Your Life as A Witness to Others" Memorial Scholarship was established in 2005 and is awarded annually to a graduating senior from her home high school, ECI and to a graduating senior from neighboring Swainsboro High School.

This scholarship was founded as a memorial and celebration to the kind of life that Candace lived.

We encourage you to read more about Candace and the scholarship.
